Marine Debris

Fishing nets which have been discarded tend to congregate whilst drifting in ‪‎ocean‬ currents and often end up on ‪#coral‬ reefs. The nets can then become entangled in the reef and smother or break the corals beneath them. Luckily our team of divers managed to dislodge this fishing net and bring it up to the surface.‬‬

Back to Hawaii... Again

The XL Catlin Seaview Survey team are back in Hawaii for the third time in a year. We surveyed the reefs here before coral bleaching hit, at the height of the bleaching event, and now we are back to evaluate the aftermath. http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/news/14-06-2016/resurveying-hawaii-after-a-major-coral-bleaching-event

I wish i had know when you were in Big island. I would love to have met you guys. I know you surveyed Kawaihae reef right after the flash floods on aug 17 2015, the condition could not be worst. I am also glad to read that my non professional assessment of surviving and dead coral colonies percentage are similar. Thank you for all the work. I live near Kawaihae.

Coral Bleaching hits the Indian Ocean

The XL Catlin Seaview Survey is a global science and communication project - recording and revealing our rapidly changing oceans.
Introduction

The world’s reefs are in a dramatic state of decline - we’ve lost over 40% of corals over the last 50 years due to pollution, destructive fishing and climate change. According to the scientific community the decline is set to continue, it will affect 500 million people globally who rely on coral reefs for food, tourism income and coastal protection.

In response to this issue, the XL Catlin Seaview Survey is creating a baseline record of the world’s coral reefs, in high-resolution 360-degree panoramic vision. It will enable change to be clearly monitored over time and will help scientists, policy makers and the public at large to see and understand the issues reefs are facing and work out what needs to be done to best protect coral reefs now and into the future.

More from the project can be seen at http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/
